Meghan Markle is opening up about the online abuse she endured when she married into the royal family
The Duchess of Sussex recently appeared alongside Prince Harry on the Teenager Therapy podcast — hosted by five seniors at an Anaheim, California, high school — and discussed the toll that social media can take on mental health.
“Yes it’s a great way to connect, but it also ends up being a place where there’s a lot of disconnection,” Meghan said. “I can speak personally too, I’m told that in 2019 I was the most trolled person in the entire world, male or female.”
During that year, Meghan was pregnant with son Archie and she recalled: “Now, 8 months of that I wasn’t even visible — I was on maternity leave or with a baby. But what was able to be manufactured and churned out, it’s almost unsurvivable.”
“I don’t care if you’re 15 or you’re 25, if people are saying things about you that aren’t true, what that does to your mental and emotional health is so damaging,” Meghan said.
